Royal Connection The Prince of Wales has a home at Llwynywermod in the beautiful Brecon Beacons. 

Why visit? Wales can pride itself on three splendid National Parks – the mountainous terrains of Snowdonia, the Brecon Beacons, and the stunning Pembrokeshire Coast. Other natural gems include the unspoilt island of Anglesey with its bevy of Blue Flag beaches, and the beautiful Gower Peninsula. For a fun, beat-the-tide adventure, stride out across the causeway to the Worm’s Head, near the village of Rhosili. Cardiff, meanwhile, boasts quaint shopping arcades, a mighty castle and a revamped Bay area, with swish arts venue the Wales Millennium Centre.

Dine out at The Ocean Restaurant in Tenby, Pembrokeshire, where you can dine on Welsh lamb and fresh mussels. 

Stay at The glitzy St David’s Hotel & Spa in Cardiff, situated in the Bay. Prices are from £160 per night.
